Akesson's Madagascar Trinitario & Black Pepper 75%


Black pepper is included in naturally tart Madagascan cacao for spicy chocolate made from neighboring plants. A bar for those who love a kick. The selected pepper for this bar is grown as a natural shade for the cacao Akesson grows. Their plantation in Northwest Madagascar yields Trinitario beans that have natural spicy notes balanced by a berry-tartness from the surrounding plants and unique terroir of Madagascar.
